Bombshell: Eric Holder Liedto Congress Under Oath
PJ Medi ^ | 5/24/13 | PJ Media

Posted on 05/24/2013 10:10:46 AM PDT by Nachum

During friendly questioning from Rep. Hank “I fear that Guam will capsize!” Johnson in Congress last week, Attorney General Eric Holder offered the following statement. In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material. This is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy. He made that statement before the facts about the sweep on Fox News’ James Rosen were known. Since then, it’s come to light that Holder himself approved the subpoena that, among other things, named Rosen as a criminal co-conspirator.

He is going to investigate himself and even do a complete body search. But in the end, what difference does it make now because it was a long, long time ago. Like at least a month or so. So, are politicians years measured like dog years?

Republicans need to force a Constitutional crisis! They knowingly let Holder skate in 2012 over Fast and Furious because of the elections. Now they got him cold and they need to really dig in.

I don’t care what political blowback there may be. We either have an honest, open Republic or we become Darfur. It’s really that simple. Is anyone willing to fight for and save the Republic? Anyone?

Zeros administration circumvents Congress every chance they get. They have no regard for congress and seem to think there is no place in America for representation of the people. So lying to Congress to them is as easy as breathing.

Holder is a nasty little racist, but he is only a symptom of the rot that the democrips bring to government. The entire regime runs on lies and deception. It is the theme established by the guy who was placed in the White House. ... and in the fall of 2008 I had freepers telling me that it was okay if this freaud holds the presidency for a few years. he can’t do so much harm that it cannot be reversed after he is gone. LOL, I wonder how we reverse the collapse of America he is overseeing for his bosses?

Holder cannot be held accountable because he was distracted when he approved the subpoena. He simply wasn't aware...

Huffington Post yesterday was calling for his resignation...maybe the push for him to go will get stronger. If they don’t remove him this time...will only embolden more abuse of power

Were his lips moving?

If so, he was lying.

Thus it is easy to understand how law, instead of checking injustice, becomes the invincible weapon of injustice. It is easy to understand why the law is used by the legislator to destroy in varying degrees among the rest of the people, their personal independence by slavery, their liberty by oppression, and their property by plunder. This is done for the benefit of the person who makes the law, and in proportion to the power that he holds.

Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons, and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim — when he defends himself — as a criminal.
